SJR Learners - G Suite for Education

2009-2010, Roland and Phil began "testing" the use of a SJR controlled version of Google Docs aka Google Apps for Education. The newly renamed G Suite for Education allows us more control of what features students can use and with whom they can collaborate. Privacy settings are significantly different from a regular Google Account. G Suite for Education is now a corner stone tool with our 1 to 1 initiative which spans Grade 4 to 12.


The G Suite for Education domain name for our school is: learners.sjr.mb.ca

Email addresses in the system will look like this: taylop@learners.sjr.mb.ca
